SWEET COBRA Prepares For Tour Dates With Mutoid Man This Month in Support of “Earth” LP
Aug 08 2015
In support of their lauded, recently released fourth LP, Earth, Chicago mega trio, SWEET COBRA, is booking new live dates, including a new tour next week on an Eastern US run with Mutoid Man.
SWEET COBRA‘s most glowing recording to date, Earth was recorded and produced by Matt Talbot of Hum and Kurt Ballou of Converge at Talbot’s Earth Analog Studios in Illinois, mixed by Ballou at his Godcity Studio in Massachusetts, and mastered by Carl Saff. Additionally, both Ballou and Talbot make guest appearances on the album. The nearly forty-six minute album shows the band hungrier than ever; the trusted and infectious ferocity fans expect is here delivered through a slick, more accessible approach. The pairing of Talbot and Ballou as producers has truly yielded a stunning, classic heavy album for the ages.
SWEET COBRA‘s awesome trek will get underway next Friday, August 11th, in Raleigh, followed by shows in Columbus, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Cincinnati, Louisville and Kansas City. For the tour, SWEET COBRA will be supporting Mutoid Man, except for Washington DC on August 15th where the headliner will be Sumac. Young Widows will also join the action at the Louisville show on the 17th. Just two weeks following the tour, SWEET COBRA will head to Peasant’s Plot Farm in Manteno, Illinois to play at Low Down Hoe Down Fest with Canadian Rifle, Electric Hawk and many others. Additional tour dates continue to be booked.
